7:00 am
good morning, america. an all-out manhunt for this suspect right now. the alleged brussels attacker who got away. also breaking now, police are now searching for a new suspect from the metro bombing as disturbing new clues emerge this morning. the missed warning signs about the terrorists. one of them a bombmaking mastermind. authorities have been searching for since the paris attacks and now the revealing message found on a computer in the trash. and we hear from this survivor. our exclusive interview this morning with the basketball player back from the states who made it through the blast. also this morning, a spring blizzard hitting the midwest after burying colorado overnight. the entire denver airport and interstates shut down and winds up to 60 miles an hour as wildfires fear through the heartland.
7:01 am
the race for president gets personal. ted cruz facing off with donald trump. >> even for donald, though, he's reached a new low. it's one thing to try and attack another candidate. it's another to thing come after my wife. >> now another attack from trump this morning and what cruz said that may have been borrowed right from hollywood. and we do say good morning, america, on this thursday morning and we have breaking new developments at this hour in the hunt for those terror suspects in brussels. george is off this morning. you see david muir, he is anchoring live from brussels. good morning, david. >> good morning, robin. great to be with you, as always. you're right, there are several breaking developments after the terror attacks in brussels. authorities are now searching for two suspects this morning. there had already been a massive manhunt under way here and a
7:02 am
this morning, people patted down at random checkpoints as police search for the man in white from this surveillance video. still not identified but on the run this morning and breaking now, word of a second man, captured on surveillance at the subway. we have obviously known about the bomber in the subway but this morning, they now say they're looking for someone else from that very scene. and we're learning more about the other suspect, two of them brothers, and now a failure of intelligence may have allowed them to carry out their attack. there were warnings. we have it you will covered this morning and "gma" news anchor amy robach has been in brussels from the very start and has the very latest. good morning, amy. >> that's right. there's been a significant number of breaking developments this morning. the suspects in those paris attacks, salah abdeslam's lawyer appeared in court just moments ago saying his client will not fight extradition to paris and he claims his client has no knowledge of the brussels attacks. meanwhile, we're learning so much more about those five suspects in this case.
7:03 am
this morning, random security checks popping up all over this city. a sign of the new normal here. authorities just announcing the search for a fifth suspect in the terror attacks, seen on surveillance footage inside the maalbeek station with khalid el bakraoui before he detonated. investigators race to piece together the trail of clues left behind by the two deceased airport bombers. belgian officials telling abc news they believe this man on the left is najim laachraoui, the bombmaker they've been hunting since the november paris attacks. police discovering his bomb factory in this suburban apartment. 33 pounds of so-called mother of satan explosive, chemicals, detonators and a suitcase filled with nails and screws and this man in the middle identified as ibrahim el bakraoui, an urgent call for a shared european intelligence agency after turkey admitted they deported el bakraoui to t
7:04 am
year. the president of turkey says they warned belgium that the bomber was a terrorist fighter but says belgian authorities couldn't identify a link. turkey's president confirming wednesday that he'd been captured last june on the syrian border deported back to europe an flagged a foreign terrorist fighter, but belgian police only identified him as a common criminal. police found what appears to be a suicide note on a laptop in a garbage can from el bakraoui. a desperate note that he was being in a rush, no longer knowing what to do in a bad situation and if he did not act immediately, he would be in a prison cell like him. authorities believe him may be salah abdeslam, one of the suspects of the paris attacks detained last week after a four-month search. he is suspected of playing a role in the brussels attack prior to his arrest. that arrest may have caused the terror cell to panic and accelerate their plans. the number of those injured in monday's attacks is up to 300.
7:05 am
them, 61 people in intensive care. four still unidentified as they lie in coma. among the missing, kentucky couple justin and stephanie shults. it is a tense scene here in brussels as authorities continue to hunt for those two missing suspects and the airport here at brussels will be closed through saturday. it is still a crime scene as investigators comb through every detail to try and find more clues into finding these suspects and, david, you and i were out late last night. it was eerie. it was a ghost town. police heavily armed members of the military and a few of us coming home trying to get a bite to eat but it's obvious that brussels here is still at its highest threat level. >> i went into the subway yesterday late in the day and they were closing it early and they had armed guards at every checkpoint. you had to open your coats before you could get on the subway here so completely different city after these terror attacks. of course, the bigger question now, how big was t
7:06 am
cell? how many are still alive and possibly planning attacks and, robin, i know you have more on that. >> we'll get back to you but abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross joins us more on the missed opportunities to stop these attacks. >> there were 16 members that operated, 13 now dead. belgian officials those two were only known as small-time criminals but that wasn't true. one of them was wanted on terrorism charges with an interpol red notice issued for him and the other was caught by turkish authorities at the border with syria and deported after the belgians were told he was a possible terror fighter. this cell operated for four months even after paris and again, and again belgian police let them slip by. >> why all these chances? >> authorities we talked to including senator angus king, a member of the senate intelligence committee says not only is there questions about their competence but discovered the belgians do
7:07 am
information with other countries even agencies within their own country. there is serious in-fighting like disfunctional, inept, keystone cops. >> even within. >> even within their agencies they don't share with each other. it's sort of described what it was like in this country before 9/11. >> all right, brian, thank you very much. back to david in brussels. >> robin, thanks. now to a "gma" exclusive from brussels this morning. my interview with the basketball player who played back in the states. his wife and two young daughters back home in michigan and played for oakland. he was hit in that blast and debris pouring down on top of him. the image of him laying on the floor went all over the world and for the first time this morning he's now talking. telling me he was thinking about his young girls back home hoping they would not grow up without a dad. what did you see? >> i just saw -- i remember seeing an explosion, the first explosion near the pharmacy at the
7:08 am
and i saw all these people running and when i got there, i was, you know, i think i blacked out for a little bit and i remember seeing two little kids to my right, you know, hands were up in the air and -- and then the whole -- the whole time i was just -- i told myself i'm going to make it. i'm going to make it. i'm going to make it and when i got in the ambulance i knew i was good. i guess that's the point where i was in the ambulance that i knew i was all right. but until then it's -- i had no idea. so that's it. i'm here to fight another day and -- >> so in the moment obviously in the most difficult moments
7:09 am
about your wife and your kids? >> yeah. sorry. i just didn't want my girls to grow up without a dad, you know. it's all right. >> have you talked to them. >> i talked to my wife. i think she's getting here tomorrow so it's funny how many things you think of, you know, i started playing tennis with my oldest one, my 7-year-old. she's a hell of a tennis player so i was like, man. i got to get through this. you know, because she needs her coach and some of the things that go through your head. it may seem so trivial but it gets you through those moments.
7:10 am
>> he kept telling himself while lying on that floor you're going to make it, you're gonna make it. you heard him say you think about the trivial things but they're not the trivial things. he was saying i want to get home he can coach my daughter. i just began coaching her tennis. now his wife is on her way to brussels. >> for all of those victims and their families who are suffering and struggling this morning, there are so many beautiful displays of support and strength throughout the city. they've cropped up even more overnight. i was walking here to our location, the amount of chalk written on the buildings all across the streets, everywhere you look, there are signs of love and peace and support and strength and the hopeful thing is that that helps this city and this world, frankly, heal from what just happened. >> the parents who brought their young children to the candles behind us while on the air this morning, a lot of the parents telling us that they wanted to help their children heal and one
7:11 am
explain to my daughters and son that this is not normal. this doesn't happen every day and we're strong enough to fight back, so a lot of families here, robin, trying to show that their city is strong, resilient and will come back from this. >> the strength of family. thank you both. we'll get back to you a little bit and, david, of course, will be anchoring live from brussels for a special edition of "world news tonight." but now we'll turn to the other big story this morning. here at home a massive blizzard slamming the west, michael is here and that story, that storm as you can see has buried colorado. >> it had buried colorado. take a look at this picture. in two week, the colorado rockies were supposed to open a game ear at coors field and right now it looks a little hard to play baseball in that, robin, but this storm is really hit and paralyzed. >> more football weather than baseball weather. >> i didn't like that in football either. >> you know what, that storm is now taking aim at the midwest. so let's go to abc's clayton sandell who is there in denver for the latest.
7:12 am
good morning, clayton. >> reporter: take a look at these cars totally frozen into place, overnight the police and national guard have been busy rescuing hundreds of drivers taken by surprise. this morning denver is recovering from being cut off from the outside world. the country's fifth busiest airport completely shut down wednesday by a raging snowstorm and blizzard stranding thousands. >> we just heard that our flight's canceled. >> reporter: forced to wait in long lines to rebook their flights. on the roads to the airport and everywhere else, drivers weren't moving either. hundreds of miles of major interstates shut down in wyoming, colorado and kansas, whiteout conditions leaving big rigs jackknifed and cars stuck. i've seen half a dozen cars pulled over like this in just the last mile, all of them are abandoned and a lot of them are crunched. the seesaw from spring back to winter conditions came quick,
7:13 am
gusting winds up to 60 miles per hour. >> good grief. >> reporter: we could show you how the temperature plummeted from the 60s before the storm to the 30s but our thermometer got buried in more than 6 inches of snow. in the meantime, from ice to wildfire, strong winds are pushing flames and smoke across parts of oklahoma, kansas and texas. some homes already lost and residents told to evacuate. and because of those fires kansas has now declared a state of emergency. here in denver they tully set a snowfall record yet at just over a foot but a lot of people here especially the owners of these icy cars are hoping for a quick spring melt, robin. >> i'm sure they are, clayton. thank you. let's get to ginger zee. where is it headed? >> you can see stretching from northeast kansas through green bay, wisconsin, all the way into new england. that's the snowy side but there's heavy rain and thunderstorms from just south of
7:14 am
morning. the severe weather part of this, the hail, the accumulating hail almost 7 inches of which in north dallas moves to the east today and bang through windows like it did in texas in places like kentucky, nashville, tennessee, much of mississippi and northern alabama so that's where the severe part goes today. the winter storm warnings stretch all the way from maine back again into parts of iowa. michigan, going to get hit with not only the snow but freezing rain and sleet possibilities. i'll detail more coming up. >> it is spring, right? >> it is spring. >> just wanted to double-check that. >> despite in that you see here. >> okay, thank you. now to the race for president turning into a war of words. over wives. republican front-runner donald trump threatening to, quote, spill the beans on ted cruz's wife, now she's responding and abc's tom llamas is here with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning to you. name-calling has become the norm this campaign cycle but now the bickering is getting really nasty involving spouses and their looks.
7:15 am
the gop race for president getting personal. donald trump and senator ted cruz now in the middle of a wife war. it started when an anti-trump super pac released this digital ad showing a nude photo of trump's wife. we had to blur it. the text on the image reading, meet melania trump, your next first lady or you could support ted cruz on tuesday. >> it was framed in such a way like it was really a terrible thing and it was sent to a certain group and i thought it was disgraceful and ted cruz knew about it. >> reporter: trump posting on twitter be careful lyin' ted or i will spill the beans on your wife. cruz posting back, if you try to attack heidi, you're more of a coward than a thought. when you read that, what did you think. >> i will say for donald he reached a new low. it's one thing to try to attack another candidate. it's another thing to come after my wife. >> reporter: was she hurt about it
7:16 am
heidi remotely. >> reporter: even heidi cruz taking on trump. >> you probably know by now most of the things donald trump says has no basis in reality so we are not worried in the least. >> reporter: and cruz maintaining he had nothing to do with the ad and that it was, quote, completely inappropriate. but trump not buying it and standing by his threat. >> i wrote, i said, be careful because otherwise i'll have to start talking about, you know, your situation. >> reporter: and cruz taking some heat for his choice of words. some critics saying cruz stole a scene right out of the film "the american president" starring michael douglas. >> if done nandz wants to get in a character fight he's better off sticking with me because heidi is way out of his league. >> if you want a character debate, bob, you better stick with me because sidney ellen wade is way out of your league. >> sounds very similar. you can hear the reaction from the studio here. cruz is a movie buff but it's unclear if that was his inspiration, the fight not
7:17 am
it's really getting ugly. overnight trump retweeting this image. the text reads no need to spill the beans, the images are worth a thousand words. cruz replying donald, real men don't attack women. your wife is lovely and heidi is the love of my life. pretty bad, guys. >> let's get back to the voting. >> the important stuff. >> the important stuff and the next one up is wisconsin about a week and a half. >> april 5th. an incredibly important primary so yesterday ted cruz goss the endorsement of jeb bush and now wisconsin's governor scott walker hasn't endorsed anybody yet. says he will do it after easter but before the primary. he's signaling, sounds like he may be endorsing senator ted cruz after easter. we'll have to wait and see. >> thank you very much. as for the current president of the united states, he's down in argentina. >> he is down in argentina and there's a video everyone has been sharing. the president and michelle obama visiting argentina right now and they were at a state dinner in buenos aires when two professional dancer talked the first couple on to the dance
7:18 am
the obamas' moves and brought 100 people to their feet, a standing ovation and lots of social media reaction and a tweet from southpaw comparing to his moves when he danced with alaskan schoolchildren in september. i think this is great and i think the tango is more his style. >> when it argue like you say when in rome -- maybe you could give him tips. >> tango is the one we're waiting on. i got some work to do. let's talk about some of that snow and ice coming into new england too. winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings that stretch all the way just north of portland, bangor, caribou, just north of the warm front, 41 boston, almost 80, d.c.

we welcome you back to "gma" and you're looking live at the plaza in brussels. a massive manhunt, as you know, is under way right now for the terrorist attack suspect seen in white on surveillance footage. authorizes also announcing they're searching for a new suspect this morning from the metro bombing. also right now, here back at home the west is digging out from a massive blizzard that closed denver's airport and shut down interstates. that is hitting the heartland this morning. a-rod, alex rodriguez announcing his upcoming retirement saying he'll leave the game in 2017 after his blockbuster tenure, $275 million contract expires saying it's time for him to, quote, go home and be dad. >> that's a good time to end it
7:31 am
over. >> another athlete is in the headlines. >> another athlete is in the headlines. that guy is nfl star aaron rodgers. the packers' quarterback has an out of this world story. he's used to closed encounters with huge linemen but now a possible close encounter of another kind and the internet is having a lot of fun talking about it. >> it could have happened. it could have happened. >> i have a few friends that said it happened to them. i don't know if they're credible but i will believe aaron rodgers a little more. our weekend "gma" anchor dan harris is joining us as well talking to the man at the center of the hulk hogan case and before we get to him -- >> such a huge story. so many talking about this. it's important, both for the media and internet. >> both sighs so before you talk to him we'll talk to linzie janis who spoke with some of the jurors and how they reached their verdict. >> reporter: this morning, the six jurors who awarded hulk hogan more than $140 million in his case against gawker speaking out exclusily
7:32 am
>> in effect they broke the law, though. they broke the law. >> reporter: standing by their decision to punish the site for invading hogan's privacy by posting a tape of him having sex. >> absolutely no doubt that the decision we made was absolutely correct. >> we believe that he was emotionally distressed by it. >> if we were all in the same circumstances how would we feel about it? and emotionally we would have all been pretty devastated. >> he's still a human being just like anyone else. >> did anyone think he might have been behind it. >> even if he knew he was being recorded, there's still no right to put that out there if he doesn't want it put out. >> how did you feel about gawker's first amendment argument? >> it wasn't applicable. >> gawker made it clear to everyone that they were all around -- about crossing the line. >> reporter: they also had strong words for gawker's founder nick denton. >> i saw you looking right at nick denton as the verdict was read. >> i was looking to see some remorse and he still have blatant disregard for what he
7:33 am
minutes with nick denton what would you say? >> don't demean yourself by going for the vulgar and the lurid and the trashy, stick to newsworthy journalism. you understand what that is. >> put yourself in their shoes if you have the ability to do that. i don't even know that they have the heart to be able to do that. it's just amazing everything -- listen and see they have no heart, no soul. it's all about the almighty dollar to them and it's sick. >> reporter: at the heart of the case the jurors say is an individual's right to privacy, regardless of celebrity. how do you feel if it gets overturned on appeal. >> we drew a line and hope others do. >> i hope he fights it all the way for all of us. >> i think he'll win. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linzie janis, abc news, st. pete beach, florida. >> and joining us now to share his side is the founder of gawker, nick denton. >> hey, dan. >> i was sitting h
7:34 am
watching those jurors and they had some pretty tough things to say about you. that one juror said you have no heart, no soul. it's all about the almighty dollar and it's sick. just gives me a sense what goes through your head when you hear that in we never had advertising running on this story and made no money on it. you know what it's like as a journalist. if you actually were feeling every single thing a subject was feeling, frankly, there would be no news. no stories would actually get written and we do put the story first and i am unapologetic about that. >> another of the jurors said and i think i know your answer to this because i think you may have just answered it. another of the jurors said she was looking for you to show some remorse. do you feel any remorse about posting that sex tape now? >> no, you know what, i don't. we didn't post the sex tape. we posted nine seconds of sexual activity in an excerpt of a much, much longer
7:35 am
it was in the koven text of a story. the story has been found newsworthy by a federal judge, by appeals court on repeated occasions, you know, i believe it was newsworthy, those judges agreed it was newsworthy and so it is a story that we would do again. >> when we spoke to those jurors, one of the things they told us a key moment for them was hearing your now former editor say that he would post a sex tape of a child as long as that child was north of 4 years old. now you've later said he was joking but i have to imagine that's a damaging moment? oh, it was absolutely a damaging moment. it was a flip remark which he made at the end of a day. he's been harried by hogan's lawyers, the same question was being asked repeatedly and, you know, they got to him and we paid a price. >> one of your main arguments has been the jury was not allowed to hear from a key witness who would have said you say that hogan knew he was being recorded during that sexual
7:36 am
however, it's interesting. we asked the jury about this and they said even if they had heard that at trial, it wouldn't have made a difference to them? well, i mean i don't know how they could know thatment bubba clem the man at the heart of this, the radio shock jock who shared his wife, encouraged his wife to sleep with hulk hogan and then taped the encounter, his testimony was vital -- is vital to our case and i think was vital to any understanding going on. he was the one who actually received the text message from hulk hogan, you know, a document that was actually unsealed by the appeals court, you know, on the final day of trial which actually shows that hulk hogan's motives in this case were entirely different from the ones he actually was talking about. >> it's worth noting that he has made -- clem has made varying statements on this issue of whether hogan knew. >> this was an interview to the fbi when lies are punishable, it's a crime to lie to the fbi. he said that
7:37 am
were cameras in the house he knew he was being taped. they were best friends, they knew everything about each other's lives so i don't think it's credible for hulk hogan to pretend that he actually had no idea of what was going on. >> hogan gave an interview after the trial. he said there was a moment when the two of you were having a stare-down and you scared the hell out of him. ar are you aware of this. >> i was aware hour eyes met. he looks through it with a wrestling metaphor. a smackdown. it's a serious case which i think in many people's eyes just trying to draw the line between privacy and the free press. i actually think it's more about, you know, publicity versus the free press, the hulk hogan was talking about his sex life incessantly on tmz, on "the howard stern show" and joking about this tape. he didn't like the story that we
7:38 am
right. it's the right of the jury not to like the story that we wrote. but it's a free press and in this country, people are allowed to write what they want and people are allowed to read what they want. >> nick denton, thank you very much. this is not over. that's very clear. robin, back to you. >> thanks to you, dan. coming up a warning about the new way thiefs are breaking into homes. abc's gio benitez goes under cover. so, i'm dressed up as a utility worker from the water company and will knock on some doors to see if people will let mae in. lots of criminals are doing this and you'll be surprised what we find. all coming up on "gma."
